There is definitely no lift on there, that's stock height. 5100's like said above. I would get a new mechanic to if the guy lied to you about a lift...

That's it.. Just make sure they are for your truck. I didn't see anywhere that mentioned fitment. Forum member Keith @dirtydeeds sell 5100's also. You may want to contact him to see what kind of deal he may be able to cut you. I heard the gen 2 5100's are scarce. I haven't heard any issues with the gen 1's. I think around $250 for the fronts is fair. You may want to price shop the labor. Pretty much any shop with a spring compressor can do the job. The rears are easy.

I have a 2015 SR5 TRD Off Road 4x4 with the stock Bilsteins and was looking at this:

http://www.procompusa.com/suspension...9333&pl=107753

It looks like it'd give me +1" in the rear and +3" to level me in the front, so overall a +1" lift and level front. Which my understanding is the best I can do without buying a full on lift kit which I was avoiding because of $ and I thought my Bilsteins were great and an upgrade that I paid for!

Any recommendations? I'm mostly pavement, not doing crazy off roading (maybe light every once in a while) and will be pulling a light ski boat or jet ski trailer in the future.

I'm wanting to get a little bit of lift and then pull the trigger on after-market tires/wheels (whatever best fits) to give my truck a more aggressive stance/look. Some Nitto G2s that stick out a little. You know, nice and meaner

Any advice greatly appreciated!

That's just spacers up front and rear blocks. I'd pass on it.

Thanks! Agreed, I'm getting educated I'm going to get Coachbuilder shackles and new Bilstein adjustable 5100s up front.

Much better choice. If you're going to spend money, might as well get something that actually enchances your suspension instead of limiting it.
